In the trailer of the award-winning war movie 'The Hurt Locker', an elite bomb squad unit is faced with an onslaught of bombs and snipers on daily bases.
Trailer to award-winning "The Hurt Locker" has just been released. Less than two minutes long, the video footage introduces first the elite bomb squad unit before moving on showing the chaos and dangers they are facing in present-day Baghdad. Filled with explosions and gun fights, the sneak peek displays how the team try to disarm deadly bombs which come in many shapes.
Based on recently declassified information about an elite Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team in present day Iraq, "The Hurt Locker" follows an EOD unit as they are forced to play a dangerous game of cat and mouse in the chaos of war. Placed in a city where everyone is a potential enemy and every object could be a deadly bomb, they must now work together to survive.
Starring Jeremy Renner, Ralph Fiennes, Guy Pearce, Anthony Mackie, Brian Geraghty and David Morse among others, the war film is directed by "Point Break" helmer Kathryn Bigelow. Premiered at the 65th Annual Venice Film Festival, Venice, Italy, back in 2008, it has collected four kudos from the festival and two nominations for Renner and Mackie from 2008 Independent Spirit Awards.
